4 trapped miners die at Tau Lekoa mine

Four miners died at shaft number 10 following a rockfall caused by tremor on Friday.

The families of the four miners who died underground at the Tau Lekoa Mine have identified their loved ones.

Xolani Meva, Lungile Nyawose, Katleho Nthibane and Karabo Mabuthile died at shaft number 10 following a rockfall caused by tremor on Friday.

One person was rescued shortly after the incident and is recovering in hospital.

National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) Matlosana regional secretary Masibulele Naki says discussions are underway to determine a way forward.

The meeting with mine bosses, family and the NUM is taking place now to start those engagements as to what is going to happen today. We will also go further to engage on the dates of the funerals.

Masibulele Naki, Matlosana Regional Secretary - NUM

The union says it is "upset" over the incident and has raised the issue of safety before.

Naki says certain measures must be put in place.

We have said that there should be measures that are put in place in cases like this. These are issues that we are always raising.

Masibulele Naki, Matlosana Regional Secretary - NUM
